The Merry Cemetery (Romanian: Cimitirul Vesel pronounced [t͡ʃimiˈtirul ˈvesel]) is a cemetery in the village of Săpânţa, Maramureş county, Romania. It is famous for its colourful tombstones with naïve paintings describing, in an original and poetic manner, the persons that are buried there as well as scenes from their lives. The Merry Cemetery became an open-air museum and a national tourist attraction.
I dunno… this one isn’t very “Merry”
Nope! You’re not lost in the world of Wonderland trying to avoid the Queen. This is a CEMETERY called Cementario de Tulcán. The place is big and very decorative. -GH
Ikizukuri (生き作り), also known as ikezukuri (活け造り), is the preparation of sashimi made from live seafood. The most popular sea animal used in ikizukuri is fish but octopus, shrimp, and lobster may also be used. The practice is controversial due to the fact that the animal is still moving after death.”

AWESOME Horror manga ever. I love this guy’s stuff. By Junji Ito “voices in the dark” go read his collection.
That’s a wrap on SDCC 2012 for me! I think I’ve only missed one since we screened the Avatar pilot in 2004, and this had to be the craziest and best Con so far. A huge thanks to all the amazing people who waited hours upon hours for the panel and two signings (and a huge *SORRY* and *COSMIC HUG* to those who were turned away), and thanks for sharing your personal experiences on how our work has touched your lives. One particularly moving story had Mike and I tearing up yesterday at the Dark Horse signing. The Avatar/Korra fans are sincerely the warmest, friendliest group of people I’ve had the pleasure to meet over the last 10 years.
Thanks again to Kevin Coppa for the adorable Korra puppet, Marissa Lee for the equally adorable Appa knit hat, James Lucas Jones from Oni Press for the extra copy of the beautifully colored Scott Pilgrim 1 Evil Edition (he didn’t know my wife had purchased one for me the day before, so I’m giving this second copy to Mike), all the awesome pieces of fan art, all the amazing costumes (pictures coming soon), and just being great fans. See you all next year! Love, Bryan
